    Pros

    Immediate supervisors support a work home life. There is no pressure from immediate supervisors to put your work before your family.

    Cons

    They do not give goals of career advancement. If employees show interest in advancing their careers and pursue their interest many times they are ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide clear career advancement options for each job title and position. Each employee needs to feel they are appreciated and valued by the immediate supervisors up to the Vice Presidents.

    Pros

    Great company, with strong core values and mission. The company is forward thinking in terms of business and personal. Cares tremendously about personal growth.

    Cons

    I live outside of Houston, so my commute is awful. It takes 45- 1.5 hours one way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more classes/courses about industry for lower entry positions.

    I have been working at Noble Energy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Culture and the opportunity to learn. I never feel as if I cannot go on vacation and when I do, I know my manager will be there to support me. The communication I have with my manager is constant and so our lines of communication are always open. This is MOST important to me particularly because my manager does not sit here.

    It has also never been an issue to seek out training not offered by the company. This is important in order for me to expand my career and I couldn't be happier!

    Finally, "Energizing the World, Bettering People's Lives" is Noble's motto and they stand behind it!

    Cons

    Technology is some what of a challenge at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on communicating at all levels and Houston managers who do not visit often enough, visit more. Not an issue with my manager though!

    Pros

    Money. That's really all I can say. Money and Benefits

    Cons

    Arrogant managers, key personnel with lack of applicable experience. Some of the long time employees demonstrate what this business unit should be. Every time upper management comes to town it's a dog and pony show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smoke and mirrors only go so far. Teach a class on ETHICS since 90 percent of the people here lack them.

    Pros

    lots of management face time, fast paced, top management gives some thought about employees, financially well managed, opportunity for advancement as company grows

    Cons

    IT very inefficient and can make getting work done frustrating. But, management would rather put money into employee bomuses than top notch IT

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    watch out for brewing turf wars between biz units

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good People, Well Established, Strong (Financially) Company, Challenging Work with Chances for Additional Responsibilities.

    Cons

    Seemingly insurmountable caste system where promotion is attained through attrition rather than performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and promote based on performance and not "years in the business".

    Pros

    Ethical company and management which demonstrates respect for its people and contractors, and for continued solid hard work, diligence and productivity.

    Cons

    Too many employees and supervisors goofing off most of the day and creating problems in business unit morale and workflow. Too much reporting in one area but not enough in other sections. Some supervisors don't know what they need to know to help with questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to crack down on employees and supervisors who are not putting in a full days' work - demoralizing and distracting to employees who are working, especially when the ones not working are in a supervisory position. Too much talking, personal internet usage, griping and egos wanting to be promoted without doing what they were hired to do now. Better screening or interviewing of candidates' experience and references is needed to be sure that new hires actually know what they say they know. Too many emplohyees leaving the office for golf outings or rig tours and leaving work undone.
